thanks man! credits goes for zolio for bringing the world together, im just the coder :lol:

here is one possible skill, we are not sure if it will be in the 1st trial or other stages because of the gameplay we are looking for, but really cool nonetheless :D

The NES game Nebs and Debs introduced me to it last year.

Just curious. A wolf with a dash move. Is it a reference/homage to Altered Beast?

We ended up not using the dash, but replaced it with something else that will hopefully be more interesting to the thematic :D

I love your sprites/tilesets! One of the best homebrew graphics I've seen on NES, good job!

Thanks! I really want to make the full game after the competition, i think it has a lot of potential and the demo is coming up quite well too :)

Edit----

We went internal testing and fixed a lot of balancing issues. The game was too hard, but not in good terms more likely unfair. We did some changes to make it more fair while keeping it fun.

We want to try and squeeze at least one more enemy, totalling up 6 and probably make some tweaks to the existing ones. It is really close to deadline but i think adding one more will be cool if we can make it :) also missing ending screens and possible music tweaks!

We went for a final map a bit different from the first ones, it will be familiar to those who played SMB but with a little twist to it!

I like Attack2 the best, so I chose that one. attack1 (last animation) second-best, attack3 (first animation) least/not very much
